Different grades of nickel is combined together to form the Monel alloy with addition of copper, iron, manganese, carbon and silicon respectively to its core structure. The core process to forge Monel begins by using soluble solutions of nickel and copper and combines effectively easy to form the a sturdy alloy. It is well known for its work hardening properties, that makes it very durable for use in various sectors where high temperature and pressure is prevalent. The Monel alloy is very resistant to harsh chemicals, with some grades of it like the K 500 grade. Monel is known to function to its best abilities at sub zero temperatures then normal temperature and is the favored choice in many cryogenic industries.
Buttweld fittings forged from Monel are not easily capable of being processed and machined. The different grades of Monel alloy are capable of being used in different areas of piping applications like use in boiler rooms where extreme heat and gases corrode and damage ordinary metal fittings. The Monel Buttweld Fittings are capable of avoiding any crevice cracks in its surface that corrode its core structure. Certain grades of Monel combine effective resistance to corrosion with enhanced durability.
